One way to encourage children to eat healthily is to get them to 'grow their own'. The Broomgrove Junior school allotment incorporates a 1940's garden - which enriches the Year 6 topic 'Britain Since the 1930's'. We are also very lucky to have a recycled bottle greenhouse, thanks to Kay Gruender, who was the mastermind behind its build and design.
The allotment committee is led by Mrs Munson and Sophie, Amelia and Isabelle. We have been running fundraising events to raise money to purchase tools, seeds and also to build a raised bed on the playground. Many more volunteers from all classes will be helping once the projects get underway.
As the growing and harvesting season takes off we hope to sell produce to parents after school. In addition to this, children will use produce for baking and the school kitchen will be serving some organic, super fresh produce in school dinners.
Watch this space for more exciting developments!
